17 May 2022

Collision avoidance manoeuvres were executed on Sentinel-1A to reduce the risk of collision with a Cosmos-1408 debris (1982), potentially occurring on 16 May 2022 at 22:55 UTC.

Five Sentinel-1A data download links through the European Data Relay Satellite System (EDRS), taking place between 18:00 UTC on 16 May 2022 and 06:15 UTC on 17 May 2022, had to be cancelled due to these orbit manoeuvres.

SAR acquisitions taking place slightly before and during this period may have been affected.
